Romcom set near fictional Pengarth, CORNWALL
Tehran, Lipstick and Loopholes
A wry and humorous account of Nahal Tajadod’s quest to get her Iranian passport renewed. She embarks on a bizarre and circuitous journey, meeting a colourful cast of characters along the way: two photographers who specialise in Islamic portraits, a forensic surgeon who trades in human organs and a grandmother who offers a live chicken to an implacable official.
TEHRAN, LIPSTICK AND LOOPHOLES is a fascinating look at the constraints and contradictions of contemporary life in Tehran from the author’s unique standpoint of being both a native of Iran and a foreigner.
